    Find what road it is then google... who lives on or owns street name and zip. See what happens you might get a name. The only other way is to go to the court house

    Chimney is awesome.

    This place must have been occupied in the relatively recent pass judging by it's condition.

    There's still some window glass and the tin roof looks in great shape, as do the boards considering they are clearly very old.

    I would interested in exploring every nook and cranny where something may have been stashed - especially fireplace, loose floorboards, rafters etc.

    Also the well could hold some secrets. Can you see to the bottom?

    Sometimes an old patch of grass in a shady area will self-limit it's growth, especially when it doesn't get mowed.

    Or maybe there are animals grazing nearby that keep the grass short-ish and the bushes trimmed.

    Or maybe it is ghosts - that old place must have them.

    How remote is it in relation to another house or road?

    Can you access the interior without breaking and entering?

    ​​​​​​​There will be some clues inside

    There are no houses near this cabin. But strangely, the grass is kept mowed, the well had a cover added, and bushes were trimmed. Aliens. In all seriousness, we are trying to find the owner, so we can learn about this p;lace.

    That's a classic cabin in a wonderful setting.

    Do you have any info about it's history?

    I think you are going find some interesting things.

    On the property I have Permisson for the summer there is a old house from that era on it. Owner said I could swing the detector if I wanted to.

    The Cabin (1700's)

    Here is a cabin I found close by my house. It dates to the late 1700's, and we are currently trying to get metal detecting permission.
